In science:

The analogous question of cobordism classification with stricter conditions on Z/p-action was answered by Conner and Floyd.
On the cobordism classification of manifolds with Z/p-action
Namely, Conner and Floyd solved the problem in the case of simple actions with identical sets of weights (eigenvalues of the differential of the map corresponding to the generator of Z/p) for all fixed submanifolds of same dimension.
On the cobordism classification of manifolds with Z/p-action
In Conner and Floyd’s book [CF1] it was shown by the methods not involving the formal group theory, that a cobordism class σ ∈ ΩU contains a manifold with a strictly simple action of Z/p (see definition 1.1) if and only if al l the characteristic numbers σω (σ) are zero modulo p.
On the cobordism classification of manifolds with Z/p-action
We define bordism Bk (Y ) only for manifolds Y , using smooth f : X → Y , following Conner’s differential bordism groups [15, §I.9].
